Thank you both for your responses. I went with the Dundee.

Thanks, Garland -- those look great.

 

What is your sense of how the 201 last compares to the 65 last, lengthwise?

Question:

 

Can anyone share the name of a good maker or makers of thin dress socks?  I have plenty of mid- and heavy-weight socks but no thin socks.

Length is very much the same, with the 201 fitting a little fuller through the ball and instep. I love how it fits. Ive finally come to the conclusion that I'm 12C in the 5 last, and an easy 11.5 D in the 201 if that helps at all.

Thanks for the info.  I have a very hard-to-fit foot.  I take a 6EEE in the 65 and 108 lasts but a 6.5E in the 97, 234, and 511 lasts.  Getting shoes in 6 EEE is a pain in the butt, so I'm hoping that 6.5E works in the 201.  I guess I'll have to try them on first to know.  I just hate to do so much experimental e-shopping -- doesn't seem right.

201 is shorter in the toes. 5 last shoes feel long to me.

 

The wide spot for the ball of the foot is about the same distance from the heel on both, and the toebox on the 201 is a touch more generous even if the very front part is a little shorter than the 65.

 

The cone comes up a little earlier on a 201, though, so you might get a different impression of the feel and where the widest part hits you, depending on your arch and instep. 65s pinch my pinkie toe a touch and squish the top of my foot when wearing the same size as the 201, mostly because I pull the leather in tight with my high instep, while the 201 fits me perfectly to my brannock size.

And it's on the 201 last!

 

I wonder how substantial the I love america whatever sale will be. I don't really have an independence line type of budget set aside, but I really do want a wingtip at some point. That Jefferson might tempt me to stretch it a bit.

 

Anyway, I guess I was asking a bit much for there to be a short wing blucher on the 201 last, but the fact that they've got most of the bal bases covered for folks with my foot shape makes me happy. That means there'll be something for me next year, as well.

 

Both the Sturgis an Dalton boots look good to me, and I've already decided the Cornwallis is just a super classy looking shoe.
